Hi Creative Embellishments Friends. Kathy Mosher here with my Spring time layout to share with you. That’s me at age 3 at the San Diego Zoo in 1955. I am wearing my favorite dress that my Grandma made with tons of lace and ruffles. My brother found this pic in a stack of slides in an old box after my Mom passed away.
I chose the paper collection from Lemoncraft called “Yesterday”, love, love, love it!!! I used double photos so I could use the Flourish Heart Frame I which comes with 2 pieces, 1 large and 1 medium, which is perfect to frame two different photos on one layout. I used the Blue Fern Studios “Baby Pink” Embossing Powder, which has a little glitter and texture that you can see from the photos. I embossed it twice to get good coverage. Love all the texture. It really sparkles IRL too!
I also used another paper collection from Stamperia called “Vintage Rose”, and it had lots of lovely tags with gorgeous rose images. So I fussy cut them out and place them around the photos to continue the garden around the hearts and photo.
I balanced the middle of the layout by using one of the Hearts chipboard that I heat embossed and backed with more Stamperia paper, added the year and some little pearls for accent.
I love Photo Corners, they are so glamorous. I really wanted to once again balance the outer edges of the layout so I used the Flourish Corner 4 which is so lovely. Once again I used Blue Fern Studio embossing powder in “Forest Green” twice. Because it was so shiny and dark I decided to rub them with turquoise wax to tone down the shine. It worked!!! I then tucked in some pretty flowers and butterflies to add to the layout.
Here’s some more closeups.
Did I mention that pink is my “signature color”. I love it so much and don’t get to use it often, so this layout was super fun for me, and a little different style. Hope you like it. Happy Spring Everyone!
